Season 2 Episode 2: David Meerman Scott, Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, Fanocracy

Episode 22: Wrapping Up Season 1

Hosting a podcast was something I NEVER thought I would want to do, much less enjoy. My gut kept telling me to, but the head trash kept saying no one will care.

The pandemic hit in March and it was time. Time to Conquer a fear. Time to invite people to a platform to let their voices be heard. Time to be intentional with what I coach others to do......say yes!

Today wraps up season 1 of Bucket List Living with Brad Norwood. I am humbled by what 20+ episodes have done for me personally.

To those of you who have been guests, to those who have listened, to those who have subscribed and to those who have encouraged me.......Thank You. Thank You.

Episode 18: 3 Secrets to Work Life Balance

Work/Life Balance can be cliche. But, I realized when the COVID19 pandemic hit earlier this year that Work Life Balance is a real thing, and when it's off balance life seems impossible.

After a few weeks of having my family all home working and schooling, I realized that every successful person that I know does the same 3 things everyday to achieve the balance. I called those things the 3 Secrets and created a framework called The 3 Secrets to Work Life Balance in a Work from Home World.

I share those 3 secrets and the framework with you in today's episode.
